What is DAXXIFY?

DAXXIFY is a groundbreaking wrinkle relaxer. This safe, FDA-approved injectable treatment targets the facial muscles that are causing wrinkles. Like BOTOX, DAXXIFY is made from a low dose of a purified protein called botulinum toxin. This substance temporarily forces tensed muscles to relax, causing lines and wrinkles to disappear and resulting in smooth, youthful-looking skin. 

DAXXIFY is unique because it includes Peptide Exchange Technology™. It is the first and only neuromodulator that includes advanced technology that stabilizes the results of the treatment, achieving longer-lasting rejuvenating effects.

Who is a candidate for DAXXIFY treatments?

Most people who want to smooth wrinkles or prevent them from appearing are good candidates for DAXXIFY in Maryland. Ideal candidates for DAXXIFY should meet the following requirements:

  • Are generally in good health
  • Do not have a skin outbreak, infection or rash in the treatment area
  • Are not pregnant or nursing
  • Are not allergic to the DAXXIFY ingredients 
  • Have no history of neuromuscular diseases

How does DAXXIFY work?

Facial expressions, including frowning, smiling, wrinkling your brow in concentration, squinting, laughing, and more, are the cause of facial wrinkles. Every time you make a facial expression, your muscles tense. As these muscles repeatedly contract in these same ways throughout the day, day after day, the muscles begin to stay in the contracted position, which results in wrinkles. 

DAXXIFY is injected into these muscles, forcing them to relax completely. The result is smooth skin that is free of wrinkles. This treatment is performed with precision and finesse, injecting only the muscles that are causing wrinkles and leaving the other muscles free to allow for natural expression.

Before & After

Like BOTOX, DAXXIFY has been clinically proven as a safe, effective treatment for patients. Both of these wrinkle relaxers are a low dose of botulinum toxin, and they both work the same way. Like all other wrinkle relaxers (also called neuromodulators), BOTOX lasts for three to four months.

What makes DAXXIFY different? It lasts up to five months longer. DAXXIFY is formulated with Peptide Exchange Technology™, which stabilizes the effects. Achieve smooth, wrinkle-free skin for six to nine months, with treatments of DAXXIFY in Maryland.

Recovery after DAXXIFY injections

After DAXXIFY treatments, there is a very minimal recovery period. There is no downtime to worry about. Patients can return to work or their usual routine and activities immediately after treatment. 

There will be some redness and slight swelling in the area for 1-3 hours after your DAXXIFY treatment. This will fade quickly. For two to three days, do not massage or manipulate the area. Don’t drink alcohol or exercise heavily, and do not expose yourself to extreme heat of any kind during this time.

Results after DAXXIFY in Maryland

You will be able to see the results from your DAXXIFY treatment in about two days or a week at most. The more treatments you have, the faster the results tend to appear. Your skin will be smoother, more youthful-looking, and refreshed. Wrinkles will be gone or diminished. And one of the best benefits is that your DAXXIFY results will last for 6-9 months.
